The summer heat means your air conditioner is putting in much more work. The best way to keep cool this summer is to stay on-top of your unit’s upkeep so you can be sure everything is running correctly. There are a few tips for you to help guarantee your air conditioner is working correctly during this summer heat.
Keep the Area Around Unit Clear of Brush and Debris
Summer is prime time to mow your lawn, making it easy for grass clippings and other debris to build up outside of your air conditioner. This can cause a decline in system capacity and reduced airflow, resulting in your air conditioner working harder and ultimately wearing down faster. Be sure to regularly eliminate any debris around your unit so your air conditioner can last as long as possible.
Change or Clean the Air Filter
Regularly replacing or cleaning the air filters in your air conditioner will improve its efficiency. For any questions about which filter to buy or how often you should change it, take a look at the filter itself or feel free to call the team at Custom Air Systems Inc so we can advise based on your specific system. For certain filter sizes, we can check and replace them at your routine maintenance visit. It’s important to know that if your air conditioner is in consistent use, it’s subject to dusty environments, or you have pets, that your filter could need to be cleaned or changed more often.
Your air conditioner’s coils collect dirt over time which will lower airflow and insulates the coil making it more difficult to absorb heat. The outdoor coils can become dirty if the area is dusty or if there is nearby vegetation. Coils can also bend, hampering airflow through the coil. Our experts can check the coils at your annual maintenance visit to clean or straighten coils as required.

The professionals at Custom Air Systems Inc can look at your air conditioner to ensure everything is working correctly, keep coils and filters clean, and much more.
